Badrinath and Kedarnath are the two holy Dhams in Uttarakhand. Located amidst the snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas, visiting these two dhams is believed to absolve a person of all his sins and allow him to achieve salvation. A brilliantly crafted itinerary, the Do Dham Yatra is a single day journey for pilgrims wanting to visit the holy sites of Badrinath and Kedarnath. You seek the blessings of Lord Badri, who is worshipped as a form of Lord Vishnu, along with Kedarnath, which is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. Both of these holy sites are visited by you in a single day via a helicopter.
The one day Yatra by helicopter has been brilliantly designed especially for those devotees who are short on time and are not physically fit to undertake the difficult Yatra. The helicopter yatra commences from Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand, and comes to an end on the same day, after devotees have visited the holy destinations of Badrinath and Kedarnath.

The one day pilgrimage called Do Dham Yatra by helicopter starts early morning at 7 AM with take-off from Sahastradhara heliport in Dehradun to Guptkashi helipad. Government regulations require the pilgrims to change the helicopter at Guptkashi and take another helicopter to fly you till Kedarnath.
After you arrive at the Kedarnath helipad, you will have to walk a short distance of almost 700m. However, you will be provided with the VIP Darshan slips. Take the blessings of Lord Shiva by entering the shrine. The divine bliss which you experience here cannot be captured or described in words.
After completing the Kedarnath Darshan by 11 AM, get transferred to car/jeep and make your way to Badrinath by road. Arrival to Badrinath takes almost an hour. Badrinath Temple is dedicated to Lord Badri, who is regarded as another form of Lord Vishnu. The temple, which is one of the 108 Divya Desams dedicated to Lord Vishnu, is considered to be one of the holiest pilgrimage sites in India.
